Russian Ark (2002)

  • Drama, Fantasy
  • 1h 36m

Alexander Sokurov’s spellbinding RUSSIAN ARK is a multi-award winning film consisting of one unbroken camera shot that moves through St. Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum. It’s a staggering work of art, an impressive technical feat that is also cinematic poetry of the first order.

As Sokurov’s camera glides through 33 rooms of the Hermitage, moving in and out of cathedral-like galleries, opulent ballrooms and shadowy corridors and workrooms, three centuries of Russian history and European art are compressed into a single 96 minute shot.

It was the highest grossing foreign language film of the year upon its 2003 Australian release. It’s now been remastered in stunning 2K digital format.

An extraordinary film, one that, like the museum itself, captures and shows three centuries of Russian culture and history in all its beauty, confusion, terror and majesty.
